If you didn't know that there were such things as dinner jackets, this entire entry may come as quite a shock. For those of you that did, read on. A dinner jacket that is white and consists of a black lapel to draw the eye, well, you're going to stand out from the crowd in the best of ways.

Not because people won't like the jacket, oh contraire, people will love it. White is one of those colors that usually stands out. You'll be seen from across the room and I would be willing to bet that you'll have more than a few people come up and start a conversation. Rock that white dinner jacket with the black lapel. How often do you think you'll get to wear it?

I absolutely think you should dress up with this coat to give a unique flair to the evening. All too often a plain white dinner jacket are the norm and wouldn't you rather stand out? The black lapel of your leather jackets for men draws attention to you and the shirt you're wearing underneath the jacket. The sleek look of the white against the black is great, and you can make an even better use of it by wearing a shirt/bowtie underneath that truly stands out. Then, when you are done mingling and ready to sit down, you can remove the jacket and wow the other folks at your dinner table with your fine choice of dress shirt.

Since your first impression will be with the white and black together, you will have that over everyone else at the dinner. The jacket is not one that you see often, and thus it will be your first "in" when talking to someone new. Use this to your advantage! Be confident and enthusiastic as your jacket will draw people in and your sparkling personality will keep them there. A plain white jacket would be nice as well, the clean lines and stark contrast of an all white suit are definitely appealing. But in reality, seeing the black lapel on your dinner coat draws your attention. It focuses your eyes from the face down to the "v" of the jacket and the shirt underneath.

While the name of the jacket seems to imply the only place where you can wear this jacket, I think that you could use your out-of-the-box thinking and come up with a few other places. For instance, why not wear this white dinner jacket black lapel to a "black and white" party? Sure most people will choose the standard tuxedo with white dress shirt as that is the classic "black and white" outfit, but you can be bold and reverse it. Wear a white suit (black lapel dinner jacket) and maybe a black shirt underneath with a white bowtie. Then you'll simply be the reverse of everyone that was too lazy to come up with anything else. You'll definitely be the focus of the party and don't be surprised if you have a lot of people asking about your attire, they might be jealous.

Another event where this jacket would help you stand out from a crowd is at prom. Now, I understand that buying a jacket like this for one night in high school might be out of the question, but perhaps the places that rent tuxedos out for prom have something like this that they can use. After all, white tuxedos are pretty popular, white not combine both white and black into one and choose the undershirt to match a date's dress? You can even grab a matching tie or bowtie to complete the entire ensemble. It's definitely worth seeing if they have, what harm could it do?

I'd also like to point out that this jacket would be an excellent choice as a wedding jacket for the groom. While it isn't traditional at all, it would blend the traditional and new age ideas together to give everyone in attendance something to be proud of. The focus generally will not be on you even wearing this jacket, but it never hurts to give your future spouse something good to look at while they walk down the aisle toward you. Maybe in 10 or 15 years when you two look at pictures, you'll both be happy that you chose something out of the ordinary. You'll certainly remember it better.

Overall, the white dinner jacket with black lapel breaks the mold of traditional white tuxedos and dinner jackets alike. The white looks fancy and pure, while the black lapel draws the eye to the chest with an undershirt that really makes you stand out. Remember, be careful around the food, everyone wants to make sure it stays clean throughout the night. Don't forget to take it off before you eat! Those sleeves dipping into the gravy boat are just a little too common. By choosing to wear something more elegant and bold than the traditional, you accept the fact that you'll be asked about the jacket at least a few times during the night. There is no need to be nervous, use it to your advantage and see if you can't make a few new friends by the end of the night. The white dinner jacket black lapel is more than just something to please the eye, it is a newer look to blend with a classic take on the dinner jacket. It will surely make you stand out.
